Christina Dobson

Christina Dobson assumed the role of Director of Data and Performance at Ready Ready as of April 15, 2022. In her new role, Christina will support staff and community partners in readiness for the evaluation of our initiative. She will coordinate with The Duke Endowment and Ready Ready’s evaluation consultants, ensuring that needed data and information are accessible. Christina will connect Ready Ready staff to additional support if necessary to provide information for evaluation and bring an equity lens to the review of data. As Ready Ready moves from a design phase to an implementation plan in many of its workstreams, the Director of Data and Performance will ensure that the initiative and the community can understand the impact of our work and learn more about how to maximize that impact.

Christina Dobson joined Ready for School, Ready for Life in 2017. As the former Director of Navigation Services, she has brought together local, state, and national partners to design and implement elements of the Get Ready Guilford Initiative and build a responsive system of care for families and young children.

Christina’s work with Ready for School, Ready for Life is informed by almost two decades of work in the Guilford County community, supporting women and families to attain their health, education, and well-being goals. In 16 years at the YWCA Greensboro, Christina designed and managed a variety of programs for young parents and their children. Following her work at the YWCA, Christina dedicated a year to United Way of Greater Greensboro through the AmeriCorps VISTA program, helping to create a community-wide network to support family economic stability. She is committed to addressing systemic barriers so that all children can thrive.
